Treasure every sunrise

image_pdfimage_print

Sayyiduna ‘Abdullah Ibn Mas’ud (radiyallahu’anhu) would recite the following du’a at sunrise. Lets ponder over its meaning, take heed and practice.

اَلْحَمْدُ ِلِله الَّذِى اَقَالَنَا يَوْمَنَا هَذَا وَلَم يُهْلِكْنَا بِذُنُوْبِنَا

Allahumdulillahil ladhi aqalana yawmana hadha wa lam yuhlikna bi dhunubina

Translation

All praise is for Allah, who has afforded us this day and did not destroy us for our sins.

(Sahih Muslim, Hadith: 1908)

 

Sayyiduna ibn Mas’ud is the most knowledgeable Sahabi after the Four Khulafa (radiyallahu’anhum).

In this supplication, he teaches us to treasure every new day!

One more day, is one more chance to earn Allah Ta’ala’s pleasure, it’s one more chance to repent for our sins.

One who commences his day with this mindset of gratitude to Allah Ta’ala‬‎, will truly value his time and life.

He who is grateful doesn’t disobey his Rabb.

The meaning of this du’a is so profound, it’s worthy of being recited/remembered throughout the day too, especially in times of the current global disasters.

May Allah Ta’ala‬‎ protect us all.
